    Hey guys just like the title says...if you have rear window molle panels, how do you clean the window behind them?
    Im thinking this is my next mod, but have been wondering if you have to take them off each time, which seems like a PITA?

    Ragos installed on my prius, picture in album, you'll get that joke
    If I'd clean back there Yes I'd tak'em down
    Not difficult taking them down once they're up top bolt and 2 allen bolts
    I don't usually clean the window tho
    For one, I have some insulation foil bubble stuff on the window itself (between the window and rear panel
    Secondly, window hardly got used before the molles amd after the panels go up visibility is even less especially if you're throwing gear on there (my2c)
    I did however just do this last night...20210421_215113.jpg battery powered led strip (images on what have you done thread)

    Hi there, mate. Tbh, I've just watched some youtube videos and made everything they did there. So, I guess you could do it too. But, the last time I was cleaning molle panels, my friend who works at https://sparklewash.com/upstate/ helped me a lot. Anyway, there are many videos on youtube on this topic. I'm sure you'll find something helpful there. Btw, has anybody else tried cleaning it? I'm curious what you used to clean it. Anyway, waiting for your reply. Keep the topic updated. BW

    I have the Cali Raised molles. Very satisfied. Took them off recently, only 10 mins, it's only 6 bolts.

    Me too. Never had Rago, but difficulty installing things and not being able to get behind them was a deal killer.

    Front plate bracket install Step hitch insert install Cargo area Pet barrier Protective seat covers Front seats Yakima roof rack- detachable Rear molle storage panels w/ Connecting shelf
    I went rago side panels with the connecting shelf. Chewy cargo canvas liner along with a auto zone cargo net are tied off along the molle system to keep as many as 2 dogs in the cargo bay. .....only thing getting past my second row backrests is the occasional hair.

    I made sure I cleaned all cargo area glass when I installed the system.

    Had I not installed the shelf, I could easily loosen the 2 bottom bolts on each side panel, swing the panels inward enough to clean the glass.
